Bells will be ringing on Remembrance Day as we take time to remember those who served our country at war. In addition to the ceremony taking place at the Stratford Cenotaph beginning at 10:30 Sunday morning, the city is joining in with the rest of the country as part of “Bells for Peace”. This year marks the 100th anniversary since the end of World War One and the occasion is being marked in communities across Canada. Stratford Legion President Dale Bast says there will be ringing in the air as the sun goes down at the direction of Veterans Affairs Canada. “In 1918, upon the completion of the armistice, bells were ringing all over Canada to celebrate that peace arrival and they say why don’t we recreate that sense of euphoria at the end of the war by ringing our bells.” Bast adds that the bells in Stratford will ring at 5:03 p.m. and many churches have said they will be joining in on chiming in 100 times with five-second breaks in between.
